Via arrays for grounding have to be carefully designed not only regarding the via pitch but also with respect to the edges of the resulting pad. At a certain frequency an unwanted wave propagation occurs along the pad edges. This paper provides a detailed analytical and numerical analysis of this crosstalk effect, together with experimental verification. The simplified model achieves very good agreement over a broad range of edge geometries.
